Don’t get too close, or you’ll ruffle his feathers.
This Raven in Yellowstone National Park is used to people and knows he’s the boss. I switched the trash can he was sitting on for a pine branch.

    Are there eagle or Hawk in Yosemite but its nice to know he is confidence. Beautiful feather.

  • Eagles and hawks are all over. We have bald eagles along the trees by the creeks and rivers here in Gallatin Valley, Montana. And, hawks are everywhere. The first eagle I saw in the wild was at the Oregon coast.

    Well done, love the missing trash can : )

  • Thanks, well, it was rather dull. The pine tree was only a turn away, but I couldn’t get raven to sit there.

    Trash can, pine branch ~ it’s all the same to Raven, though at times he has GREAT powers of discernment. Wonderful shot any way you look at it.

  • I didn’t see anyone feeding anything, but they hang out there for a reason!
